So I joined the Entertainment Consumers Association
and recieved this E-mail from president Hal Halpin
about the fight for net neutrality and what gamers can do to help out...
"Without Net Neutrality, your Internet Service Provider is free to charge you extra for playing World of Warcraft, to interfere with Xbox Live, or to completely shut off your ability to access your favorite Web sites. Net Neutrality affects your entire online experience. Please stand with your fellow gamers and make sure Net Neutrality is guaranteed."
Holy shit - So you mean to tell me that Comcast could charge me even more than the already overpriced $100 I have to pay for cable/internet, plus the extra $50 bucks in "equipment rental fees" and taxes and crap just because I play video games online?!
Fuck that. Take a stand by clicking here
and sending the automated letter to your member of congress.
Sorry for the spam, but I think that is crazy. The gaming community needs to band together and take a stand against this kind of crap.
